    Avoid the "The Writers' Group" here on Fim Fiction

    It's full of a bunch of people who snub any writing advice that would actually result in better writing. They show nothing but disrespect for solid advice with clear methods and instead tell people that "you should just feel pacing" and "you'll know how to do it after you write enough and become a better writer the natural way."

    Do not FEEL your way through structure when writing stories

    There are a lot of half-baked authors who seem to think that "feeling" your way through pacing, structure, and storytelling is the way to go. They are flat out wrong. Practice form and get good at it before you think about breaking form.

    Apple II - 8 Bit Ponies (Emulated Apple ][) hires graphics

    Some ponies as Apple II graphics (hires mode)

    Thanks to pcx2hgr, dos33-programs, GIMP, LinApple (emulator), Shutter, etc.

    Okay, there’s Twilight (classic and alicorn-wings-down), Spike, Apple Jack, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, and Fluttershy as Apple II hires graphics running in an Apple II emulator (LinApple). Here, they are displayed in both color and classic green :)

You can grab the Apple II dsk image from archive.org if you want to run it in your own emulator (make sure to turn off “enhanced” disk speed or they will load too fast): Grab it here

Sacrifices had to be made on color choices as the Apple II only has 6 colors in hires mode:
